Virtual Lunch & Learn: Spiritual Resistance During the Holocaust – Virtual Tour

November 11, 2021 | 12:00pm CDT


Join us for a virtual docent-led experience of our newest thematic tour by veteran Museum guides Miki Jona Schreiber and Laurie Hasten as we explore the ways Jewish people maintained their humanity and dignity by using their spirituality to lift themselves above the dehumanization of the Holocaust.

This virtual thematic tour is a docent-facilitated presentation that highlights artifacts and stories from the Museum’s Karkomi Holocaust Exhibition through the lens of Jewish spiritual resistance. Hear the stories of those who found strength from their faith or drew resilience from within, to resist and combat their dire situation, risking their lives to maintain traditions, educate their children, celebrate sabbath and holidays, and sustain their inner beliefs and soul by transcending the physical in the face of Nazi tyranny.

Presented in partnership with YU Torah Mitzion Kollel of Chicago.
